Living Divani collaborated with designers Stephen Burks, Studio Klass and Leonardo Talarico on several new pieces for 2019. The collection includes Storage unit Islands, Table Flap and Materica.
For the first time, Living Divani crosses paths with the New York designer and keen traveller Stephen Burks: Islands is a family of free standing storage units accessible from different sides, thanks to a perimeter of aluminium slats which appear to have been randomly fitted. A central pivot allows them to rotate and create either a compact shape or an airy presence, offering different interpretations of the same product and an example of fine craftsmanship.
Marco Maturo and Alessio Roscini, from Milan-based Studio Klass, seal their first collaboration with Living Divani. The new Flap tables, available in round, rectangular, square and oval shape, are defined by a lacquered structure which welcomes a wooden top that opens thanks to a piston, enjoying always different relationships between humans and products.
Living Divani’s clean silhouettes meet the essential style of young Italian designer Leonardo Talarico. The new glass holder Vizio, furnishing element for indoor and outdoor use, consists of two lines that cut through the air, evoking dynamism and ethereal balance at the same time: a gesture that becomes real and acquires three-dimensional value thanks to the lightness of the steel rod, enriching Living Divani’s outdoor space with a powerful visual element.
The Materica table lamp for indoor use is a sculpture-like object resulting from the taking out of the excess while catching a fleeting intuition, natural outcome of a free creativity. A delicately modelled steel tube joins two spheres, the lower one in marble and the upper one in glass, from which the light comes out, emphasizing the curve silhouette and highlighting the fine simplicity of the whole.
